Just a quick reminder that Stampin Up's Sale-A-Bration promotion is still running and will continue until 28th February. For every £45 you spend ( before P+P) you will qualify for one of the four free stamp sets available.
I had a play with my sets yesterday and here are a few cards that I came up with. All four sets can be used in different ways and I know I will use them time after time.
If you are interested in placing an order please email me.

It is my Mother in Law's Birthday on Saturday and I just thought I would share with you the gift bag, box and card that I made for her yesterday.
The box is the Origami Box with cover from Splitcoast and it was so simple to make. I will be making a few more of those as they look lovely and are really quite sturdy when completed.
All three items use the Stampin Up "Live your Dream" which will always be one of my favourite sets I think.

I have not had a lot of time for stamping in the past month as we have been busy finishing off our decorating ( we started this in May....but it was always going to be a long job as we totally gutted our lounge and dining room and also had a whole wall taken down in the lounge)
It is now finally finished and I had the carpets fitted on Thursday. The house has been in total uproar for the past two weeks especially, as we had to virtually empty the downstairs area so I have spent the weekend trying to get it all straight.
I have also started my major Craft Room clearout so it actually looks horrendous at present as I have soooooooo many sheves / boxes with things out whilst I sort which things are going.
In amongst this total madness I have actually made a couple of cards using the Hostess Level 1 set "A Little bit of Happiness. I have had this set for a couple of months at least and only mounted it this week. As in the previous post.....I have only managed to make two very simple cards so far but I just know I will keep coming back to this set as it is really so lovely. There are 4 stamps in total and I love this long, horizontal look. The one with the hearts will be so good to use for Valentines or Anniversary cards.
Well I need to get some more of these boxes sorted out now as I have no room to move in here until I remove some stuff.

I thought I would share with you a couple of cards I made yesterday with my christmas gift from my sister.
The stamps are from the gorgeous Stampin Up set " Fun and Fast Notes. I love this set as there are 8 stamps in the set ( or 16 if you count the sentiment with each image as a seperate stamp) and you would be hard pushed to find a set of stamps that are as comprehensive as this collection. The set includes 8 images and sentiments for : Christmas, Wedding, Get Well, Birthday, Congrats, New Baby, and Thanks.
These cards are just simple little cards as I have been pushed for time this past fortnight. I can't wait until next week when I will definitely have a bit more time for stamping as I want to play some more with this stamp set .

Hi there I just thought I would share with you my very first craft project of 2009.
I altered this 6 x 6 box ( I have been hoarding it for about 5 years)
I received the Christmas Card from a fellow card maker ( thank you so much Kath) and it totally inspired me to get crafting in 2009
I was so taken with her card design I had to use it to brighten up my little box. And I now have a little custom decorated box in which to store all of my Cuttlebug Embossing folders.
Now where to find some more little 6 x 6 boxes . . . . . . . . . .
